This dissertation consists of four essays which approach the topic of organizational culture from substantially and methodically different directions. The first (methodological) part presents two ways of a graphical representation of three-dimensional point clouds. The second part addresses the questions whether an adequate organizational culture can motivate employees to report errors. Two laboratory experiments test the effects of cultural and other variables on the willingness to report errors.
